      Yooo Minna~SAN!!

      Current Anime being watched: Steins;Gate

      Genre: Sci-Fi, Romance, Mystery (from what I've seen)

      Recommend it? OF COURSE!

      It tells the story of Okabe Rintarou a self-proclaimed mad scientist along with his fellow "Lab Members" as they fight an organization in the future (terminator vibes eh), well anyways.. this is a must watch for everyone, though some may not understand it then watch it and you'll understand why I'm saying that this anime is outstanding (you could already understand what I'm saying just by looking at the show's ratings.) There's also some romance, that's pretty awesome if you ask me, though I've already watched the movie and have not watched the series full yet (which is pretty much one of the most stupid things that could happen) but I guess I have a Spoiler Paradox if that's what it's called, or maybe it was just my stupidity cause actually I thought the I was watching the first thing and I really thought that it was a movie, and the thing is I discovered that it was really the last of the franchise.

      Rating: 9/10 (I wanna stay true to the MAL Rating, though what I wanted was 10/10, but see for yourself. .

      GO WATCH IT!!

      The self-proclaimed mad scientist Rintarou Okabe rents out a room in a rickety old building in Akihabara, where he indulges himself in his hobby of inventing prospective "future gadgets" with fellow lab members: Mayuri Shiina, his air-headed childhood friend, and Hashida Itaru, a perverted hacker nicknamed "Daru." The three pass the time by tinkering with their most promising contraption yet, a machine dubbed the "Phone Microwave," which performs the strange function of morphing bananas into piles of green gel.

      Though miraculous in itself, the phenomenon doesn't provide anything concrete in Okabe's search for a scientific breakthrough; that is, until the lab members are spurred into action by a string of mysterious happenings before stumbling upon an unexpected success—the Phone Microwave can send emails to the past, altering the flow of history.

      Adapted from the critically acclaimed visual novel by 5pb. and Nitroplus, Steins;Gate takes Okabe through the depths of scientific theory and practicality. Forced across the diverging threads of past and present, Okabe must shoulder the burdens that come with holding the key to the realm of time. written by myanimelist.net

    2. Writing is my favorite. Looking at different hand writings is a delight. Looking at a pen gradually lose its ink as a few words goes by resembles life. Every curve, every straight line, every stops and spaces will only become meaningful at the end of the paragraph.

      Why do I write? I write simply because I love watching my pen touching the paper leaving marks as if claiming its territory. It's sometimes referred to as a talent but I looked at it as a past time spent between my soul and these different strokes on paper.

      Every idea and plot some times cease running and somewhat feels shy to confront this wondering mind of a self-proclaimed writer. There are also times when ideas struck hard and these hands feels numb and can't keep up with the mind which resembles to a long awaited intercourse between the pen and paper. Every touch proclaims longing and desire to touch the familiar pages once again. 


      P.S. These phrases actually just came to mind yesterday when I was supposed to write for my journal. I hope you like it. :) Constructive criticism is always accepted. :D

    • The story is set in the distant future. The land is ruined, and humanity establishes the mobile fort city Plantation. Pilots produced inside Plantation live in Mistilteinn, also know as the "birdcage." Children live there knowing nothing of the outside world or the freedom of the sky. Their lives consist of battling to carry out missions. Their enemies are mysterious giant lifeforms known as Kyouryuu, and the children pilot robots called Franxx to face off against them. For the children, riding the Franxx proves their existence.

      A boy named Hiro is called Code:016, and he was once known as a prodigy. However, he has fallen behind, and his existence seems unnecessary. Not piloting a Franxx is the same as ceasing to exist. One day, a mysterious girl known as "Zero Two" appears before him. Two horns grow out of her head.

    • There are words Violet heard on the battlefield, which she cannot forget. These words were given to her by someone she holds dear, more than anyone else. She does not yet know their meaning.

      A certain point in time, in the continent of Telesis. The great war which divided the continent into North and South has ended after four years, and the people are welcoming a new generation.

      Violet Evergarden, a young girl formerly known as "the weapon," has left the battlefield to start a new life at CH Postal Service. There, she is deeply moved by the work of "Auto Memories Dolls," who carry people's thoughts and convert them into words.

      Violet begins her journey as an Auto Memories Doll, and comes face to face with various people's emotions and differing shapes of love. All the while searching for the meaning of those words.

    • There's an evil creature called Aratama that attacks people, and a group of Miko has been exorcising those creatures using swords since olden times. Those who wear uniforms and swords are called Toji, who are officially called Tokubetsu Saishi Kitoutai (Special Ritual Maneuver Team) in the police association. They are officially approved to wield the swords by the government officials. The government has established five training schools consisting of junior and senior high levels for the female students to attend. They spend their student life normally, and use special skills with the swords when they're doing missions to protect people. In the spring, these five schools are to take part in a competition. Among the girls who train for the competition, there's a girl who's a bit more passionate than any other girls. Where would the girl with the sword aim?

    • The project's premise follows Kouta Hasegawa, a high school boy that loves the yellow Pom Pom Purin dog. By mere coincidence, he ends up attending the same school as Yuu Mizuno, a boy who likes the bunny My Melody. Yuu tells Kouta that there's nothing to be ashamed of for liking Sanrio's cute characters. Together, Kouta, Yuu, Shunsuke Yoshino, Ryou Nishimiya, and Seiichirou Minamoto learn to accept their love of the characters instead of feeling embarrassed.

      So our Mission director at my workplace just decided to give me a giant cut of sockeye salmon tonight. She's awesome. Perfect way to improve a snowy late-April day.

      Sword Art Online: Alicization

      I'm not leaving a rating since I haven't saw it yet, the 10 stars rating is referring to the trailer.. I guess. Judging from what I saw, it is known that this will be a great anime and will be watched by many, the art is pretty great, it's kinda give me the ordinal scale feels since it shares the same animation & graphics from the movie but with a little more new things I guess, as expected of A-1 Pictures, Darling in the FranXX was Outstanding and so will this be, I hope.. nevertheless.. we'll be waiting.. guess Zero Two's going back to being the former vice-commander of the Knights of Blood Oath. LINK START!

      Sword Art Online: Alicization

      This is going to get watched regardless of it's predecessor. Season 2 wasn't the greatest, but I'm hoping that this is different. So far, I'm happy with what I see. 
      Sword Art Online: Alicization

      Looks amazing! Judging by how good the previous SAO seasons have been I seriously doubt I will be disappointed. Looks epic and beautiful as ever! ♥

      Made in Abyss

      Mysteriously in Depth Highlight Points Main Plot is unique and not as cliche as other animes about a child going after a long lost parent. The main objective of the Main Character is there but the plot doesn't just focus on the objective of the Main Character alone.  Background stories of the supporting roles are in depth and spice up the anime as a whole. The anime shares some of its secrets and teasingly keeps other mysteries in reserve for the viewers to find out sooner or later in the anime. It doesn't give everything all at once which makes it not boring to watch.                                                  Comments Character Developments are kind of slow since there are a lot of backstories shown so some parts of the anime focuses on this supporting character and so on. This backstories MAY BE because the anime wants to explain the real deal about the abyss by the use of these backstories so it kind of goes against chronological order unlike other animes where the Main Character discovers the truth for himself. In this anime the supporting characters were given the spotlight and the viewers can see through the thoughts and point of views of each supporting characters.

      Black Bullet

      Could've Been Better Positive Insights:  It has a fresh plot which is very unique to anime viewers. It can also be recommendable to new viewers that are still starting out there.  The Character Chemistry is also lovable especially Enju and Rentaro The anime is clearly raining with lolis Comments: The Development and Hype was there at the beginning but as it gradually grew deeper in the story the development kind of runs out of fuel. The ending is understandable and somewhat hanging (which is a good thing) but the reason why the ending leaves a bad impression for everybody is that the ending was unexplained ahead of time. It can make you wonder what the heck happened, why did it have to end like that, and where exactly did that kind of development grew? Overall Impression:          Overall Black Bullet is a lovely anime. The plot isn't as cliche as other animes not to mention the lovely chemistry between the two Main Characters. The Opening Song is actually quite catchy too. Development of the characters lacks but it could've be better.
